Happy Birthday Blog…

HappyBdayBlog
Dear Blog,

A year back(June 10,2004), I created you with a “Hello World” Post. Many thanks to Sudhir for the inspiration !

Then, I completely ignored you for months.

From October, slowly started posting something like news and some of my thoughts. Once in a while people came here and left comment for some of the posts.

Later ( Jan 2005), I found the true pleasure by visting other blogs. It was good feeling to know many people – their thoughts and emotions.
Then, you saw people visting you :
– Some people visited you just to reciprocate: of course everyone has different taste and limitations.
– Some really wanted to read what I write(scribble??) . I’ll continue to write for those kind souls 🙂
– Some read without commenting
– Some took time to comment
– Some linked me

I have tried so many templates offerred by blogger and some free ones available on the net changed your look many times !

Then, you saw me fully getting addicted to the blogdom. One day, at midnight 1:30am, I wrote the i-me-myself post in an attempt to describe me 🙂 .

I have shared my nightmares and some of my interests through you.

Though I loved getting comments, later discovered the true joy found via “invisible threads” and “sympathetic fibers” – those human connections made along the way. I have got very good friends through you – made difference to my thinking and even I got rid of some of my inhibitions. Though I had lot of confusions at times, I had lot of new learnings as well!

Also, you have seen me clearing my doubts and confusions by questioning your visitors 🙂

At times, I wanted to ignore you and run away from blogdom… which I couldn’t !

I wish you a happy 1st B’day!!! And I hope, I would continue to share my thoughts to the world through you.

I take this opportuniny to thank:

  • all past, present and future bloggers
  • who found this blog to be funny, technical, philosophical, intellectual, informative, childish or insane 🙂
  • whom I have met/will meet / have personal contact / have touch only through blogs and all the silent readers….and everyone else.
Thank you very much for making a difference to my thinking ! It was a wonderful experience for me. If I have hurt you, in this process by any chance, please excuse me.

with luv,
It’s me

PS: Created the post on on 5th June as I’ll be busy during this week days.
I’ll meet you all from Chennai(the Comfort Zone) from 13th June ….

Update: Please, no comments on the lines ” hahaha … what a silly fellow to celebrate his blog’s b’day :)”.

    >Interesting/funny how we have started celebrating b’days for something thats virtual/inanimate. So what other privileges is this virtual thing gonna get, makes me wonder!
    What other crazy ideas are we gonna come up with? 2 blogs getting married :). you never know, there are some crackpots who might just do that!
    Sad interesting and funny!

    Kewl blog da 🙂

  • Krish

    >@kars:
    machi… think there is marriage between blogs already via linking. But, all blogs follows polygamy 🙂

    1)If you visit a blog for the 1st time and u like it and blogroll it immediately – It is Love at first sight.
    2)If two blogs have mutual links to each other – it’s marriage.
    3)If one links and other ignores – One sided love
    4) If the links is removed after sometimes (reasons like -other not showing enough attention to ur blog or hate their views after sometime) it’s divorce.
    5)If the other one also removes the link – it’s divorce on mutual consent 🙂

    >Hey Krish..

    Though this sounds very crazy.. Happy B-day to your Blog… LOL.. i feel like saying celebrating your dog’s B-day… yet, its true that we feel very clsoe to these virtual thing and associate it with our own space in the web.

    Some part of the web belongs to us too, aint it?? 🙂

    anyway, keep posting. have a nice time..

  • Nep

    >I should have got a treat from you, instead of me giving treat :))

    Good post machi!

    On ur comment: What if both the bloggers are male/female?? ;-D

  • Kars !

    >@krish
    its just so sad that we celebrate b’days to something thats literally made up of 1’s and 0’s (i didnt see any note about gandhi jayanti or childrens day!). celebrating a dog’s is just fine cos its your pet and its a tangible living thing that has emotions and it reciprocates. your bullets about “linking” to marriage are interesting but if you think about it, they call this the “web” for a reason and the reason being the “links” and i dont think we should classify that as a matrimonial relationship, its a relationship of a different nature, i doubt its of marriage like you call it :). but nonetheless, it was pretty impressive :).

  • Krish

    >@magnus anand :
    Thax on behalf of my blog 🙂

    @Nep:
    Its about the *BLOGS* not about the bloggers!

  • Krish

    >@kars:
    Even if we take up humans and othe living thing finally it’s going boil down to 1s and 0s… is it not??

    Thx for giving the word “Web” for the linking. I just wrote that for fun as u asked abt marriages between blogs 🙂

  • Kars !

    >> Even if we take up humans and othe
    > living thing finally it’s going boil
    > down to 1s and 0s… is it not??

    ya we can boil down anything and everything to the level of electrons and protons (1’s/0’s or whatever) but theres a difference between the living and others. i certainly wouldnt say “i have had this toilet for a yr, happy 1st b’day mr.toilet” :).

    seringa da, ellam santhoshama erruntha seri. 🙂

  • Krish

    >@kars:
    LOL.. i know u wud come with this comparison…

    But, blog is something different. It involved humans, emotions,thoughts and arguements,conclusions and frustrations etc.,

    I can relate it with some living thing…try reading the same post after a year- won’t u get see a set of good memories- wont u smile at that time ??… and just compare it with the example u gave.. u would understand the difference 🙂

    Anyway, I get ur point of view :).It depends on the way we see things!

  • Kaps

    >A nice post to commemorate your blog’s first birthday. Congrats and keep blogging!

  • Narayanan Venkitu

    >when I saw the cute picture of the puppy, I thought it was his birthday.! Only then did I realize it was yours.!! Happy blogging my friend..and congratulations.!

  • Mithuna

    >Krish,

    Your random thoughts now have a definite shape 🙂 and as sudhir did to you, I have seen many mention that only because of you they write and continue writting.

    Congratulations and great that it celebrates its day in SJ :))))))

    Regarding your thanks and apologise, I think it is your site and whatever you write here is your views, ideas etc etc… Everyone is unique and same you are and doing it in a excellent way, Good luck for future posts!

    Take care buddy!

  • Smyta

    >Krish:

    Brilliant post..Happy Birthday to your blog!!

    //1)If you visit a blog for the 1st time and u like it and blogroll it immediately – It is Love at first sight.
    2)If two blogs have mutual links to each other – it’s marriage.
    3)If one links and other ignores ….//

    Loved this piece of writing:-))
    I agree with you on your thoughts about relating blogs to human beings..:-)

    Smiles etc.,

  • Anbu

    >Nice instrospection Krish…
    Great views on Blogrolling… But yaar, I have blogrolled you and you have blogrolled me… So is it gay marriage or is it that Blogs are gender-less??

  • Kars !

    And your comment on blogs getting married, divorced etc… was way too funny.

    Keep going.

  • nksenthil

  • Krish

    >@all:
    Am lil busy :). Sorry for the delay in response.

    @kaps:
    Thanks..I wud continue to scribble.

    @narayanan:
    Yup..that puppy pic is misleading. I am in that state of the puppy :))!!

  • Krish

    >@mithuna:
    Thanks – my blog wud be happy :))

    @smyta:
    Thanks Smyta.
    On the comments on marriages betn. blogs u marked only three. Even I considered the negative aspects while writing the last two. Just wrote that for the sake of compeleteness 🙂
    Thanks for tagging me for the “Musical Tour”. Sure I’ll contine the tour one day!

  • Krish

    >@anbu:
    Hmmm.. Anbu, I see it this way. Blogs don’t have any sex. As we r controlled by destiny( what we feel,see atc ), blogs are controlled by humans. If u can get it very good, otherwise just forget it :), Just wrote that for fun !

    @sharana:
    Thanks for dropping by and for teh wishes 🙂

    @somu:
    Yeah. Sustaining interest on something is very difficult. It always depends on the individual and the mood :). One day may not visit this blog for months. Who knows…

  • Krish

    >@senthil:
    As you are with me, you are seeing the change. It definiteltly refined my social skills !

    @neelima:
    True neels – u know it very well. Thanks for the wishes.

    @ram.c:
